  • How Old is Too Old?

    I really want to cosplay but I have no money! I d'no when I'll get money for it and I feel like I'm running out of time age-wise... I don't wanna end up past my cosplaying prime!

    You see, I look and sound very young and I'm very small and thin... so I think I'll be able to squeeze in a few more years after I'm too old. But, because of the babyface/tininess, I'm pretty sure I can only do tiny cute characters. Those definitely have an expiration date.

    So, how old is too old to cosplay?

    If done right then age doesn't matter. Of course this completly depends on who you want to cosplay. The best bet is to cosplay a character close to your own age.

      Don't worry, if you are too old for cosplaying police will go to your home and remove all your cosplay clothes. And if you do it twice, you get arrested.

      So, if that didn't happened to you already, then no problem.

        There is no age limit... its up to the character.

        Most seinen and shounen series have older characters like
        30-40-50 ... and then you can always make a really popular
        old character...

        Like Old Snake or Master Roshi for instance.

        But obviously past 20 for general rule, you cant no longer
        make a teenager or little kid , but then a yound adult for a lot of time.

        Since my favourite charas have around my own age, give or take
        some years i dont have any trouble.

        I will still be able to make Seijuro Hiko or Saito, Mitsurugi or Batou, etc.

        And then, there is always the chance to make sponge suit characters...
        i was thinking on making a Chocobo from Chocobo Dungeon myself for
        instance.

        There is always chance, is up to you to choose.
        With a infinite number of universes, your life is interesting on one of them.

        We`ve got to part now, you and I, but dont be sad America. The Enclave is working tirelessly, to rebuild this great nation, so you dont have to. Until we meet again, this is President Zero, signing off.

          There is no age too old for cosplay... you may however wish to adjust characters accordingly...

            Hmm... Well, it's just that :

            a) I like the adorable characters 'cos they have the funnest outfits!
            and b) I really am too tiny for the characters that are supposed to be around my age, let alone older! I'm kinda loli-sized lol and older characters tend to be busty and look like... women

            I've always looked at least 3-6 years younger than I really am and my mom looks about 10-20 lol so I figure if it keeps going this way, as long as I don't have wrinkles it could maybe work?

            Other than that... do you guys know of any girl characters that aren't super well endowed? And would you be unhappy if someone older cosplayed as a younger character (and did a good job on the costume )? Not like 40 year olds cosplaying as 8 year olds... That's too much!

              Girl... if you're going to get angry at people doing cosplay wrong you shouldn't go to conventions... it'll be deleterious on your mood/health...

                Oh, right. I'll get a backbone for it 'cos I really want to!

                Well... I meant 20-something girls. I'm... 21 D: I still look about 15 but y'know ^^; That's why I'm worried about age...

                  Quoted for the damn fucking truth. You're going to dig your own eyes out at this rate :<.

                  Also, a mature Chiyo-chan is fine too~ Oh delicious chest. As a general cosplay rule and etiquette. It's suggested that you cosplay something close to your build or age but feel free to experiment as you see fit.

                      You're only as old as you feel when you cosplay. XD

                        Thanks everyone! I'll get to work on those sketches again! Can't find 'em... Think they got thrown out by accident... Anyway, whenever I get them done over I'll post them somewhere... and when I sew the costume all up I'll post it here!

                        Thanks again! <3
